Danny graduated from the University of Hull with a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science in 2012. During his time in the Sport, Health & Exercise department, he gained valuable experience working as a study participant and research assistant for departmental research projects and during testing of elite Super League rugby players.
Danny has worked as a qualified England Boxing coach since 2008. In this role, and through self-employment, he has gained experience of working with combat sport athletes at all levels ranging from grass roots to a selection of both professional and Olympic-level athletes. During this time, he has authored global publications for websites, national governing bodies and magazines amassing more than 13.1 million views worldwide.
Following the completion of a HE/FE Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), Danny moved to education and specialises in the areas of sport and biology, with expertise in special educational needs. He has taught in a range of settings, including primary, secondary, FE and HE.
Danny is currently completing a thesis at the University of Hull investigating the effect of changing boxing ring-sizes on physiological, technical and tactical markers among amateur boxers. It is his aim to complete Doctoral studies and move to lecturing in the area of sport and exercise science. His research interests include the physiology of performing enhancing drugs (PEDs), combat sports, performance nutrition among weight-classified athletes and teaching and learning theory in sport.
As a student himself at the first University of Hull Student Thesis Conference, and having attended the STC 2014 as a seminar presenter, Danny is extremely excited to be invited back as the Keynote Speaker to share his experiences with the STC2019 cohort.
